Parental controls

Reduce screen time and get more family time!

 

Parental controls allow you the ability to manage content access for each profile at the device level. Set screen time limits and filter bad websites.

Set up individual profiles to manage parental controls

You can set up individual profiles for all members of your household in the app. For each profile, you can assign personal devices and manage the access level of each device separately. For example, if your child has a phone, a tablet, a laptop, and a gaming device, you can give each device different access levels if you want.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Tap the People icon at the bottom middle of the screen
  2. Tap “New Person”
  3. Name the person, select the devices to associate to their profile, and choose parental controls, if any, for each of those devices
  4. Tap the green check mark at the top right to add the person
  5. Repeat for any additional users

Once you have added someone, you can select any device associated with them to see their internet usage and security settings, and even to schedule an internet freeze.
